Georgia Tech Earth And Atmospheric Sciences is running a monthly Science Showcase at the Ponce City Farmers Market. Stop by the first Tuesday of each month to learn more about exciting topics like coral reefs, light pollution, and DIY meteorology kits. Every session will have an activity just for kids, with a special sticker badge for completing it. Are you ready to be a Hazard Hero, a Climate Ranger, and a Dark Skies Avenger?!  This week, meet Dr. Kim Cobb, who has studied climate change indicators in the tropics. We know that the burning of fossil fuels results in higher concentrations of carbon in the atmosphere and ocean, which leads to further release of carbon / warming through the melting of permafrost and loss of reflective ice. Learn about what all this means and what we can expect to see in the coming years, decades, and centuries.
